Tonight: First Semi Final! Where can you watch it and who will qualify?

Piše: Teddi Cular

Tick, tock, the day has arrived! Tonight at 21:00 CET sixteen countries will take the stage in Rotterdam Ahoy and battle for their ticket for the Grand Final. Sixteen countries but only ten can go through.

After last year’s cancellation, Rotterdam is at it’s best to make this Eurovision unforgettable. The honor to host this long-waited event and to shine the light belonged to Chantal Janzen, Edsilia Rombley, Jan Smit and Nikkie de Jager.


WHERE TO WATCH?

If you reside in Croatia you’ll be able to watch the event on HRT 1 starting at 21:00 CET, but also keep an eye on official Eurovision’s YouTube channel because they might be live streaming as well. There’s also good news for all the fans in the USA, because you’ll be able to stream all three live shows on Peacock streaming platform free of cost at 3:00 PM EDT.

WHO’S PERFORMING TONIGHT?

Sixteen acts will perform tonight. However, due COVID-19 precautions and safety measures both Australia’s broadcaster and Montaigne decided not to fly to Rotterdam and instead performing on Ahoy’s stage, they will use Live On Tape performance they filmed earlier this year.

Our team agreed on nine countries that we think will soar to the Final. In random order those countries are:

  • MALTA
  • UKRAINE
  • AZERBAIJAN
  • CROATIA
  • RUSSIA
  • NORWAY
  • SWEDEN
  • LITHUANIA
  • CYPRUS

As of who will be tenth finalist we were debating on Slovenia, Belgium and Israel, but with majority of votes we predict SLOVENIA to go through.
